A multi-paradigm mapping method survey

Abstract:Recent research into integrated engineering applications has shown that the definition of a shared product model only solves part of the data exchange problem. When product data models are taken from their modelling environment to be used in practice, integration problems occur due to the unavoidable semantic mismatch between the models, representing the different actors in the system. To solve this problem it is necessary to support multiple views on the application domain ffom within this integrated system. Futhermore, when an integrated system is developed, product models can not be treated as static and frozen but need to be adjusted frequently, requiring existing instances of the model to be migrated from one version to another. Hence, the mapping problem domain is identified. In the emerging field of mapping languages, many solutions are proposed by research and industry, all having merits and weaknesses. We present an overview and a brief comparison of several approaches in this field from the system-developer's perspective.
